Welcome to Embedded-Knowhow , a site which provides resource information on microcontrollers and embedded systems for students, lecturers, and practitioners, and back-up information for  books I have authored or co-authored.

  

Fast and Effective Embedded System Design - Applying the ARM mbed. 2nd Edition
 Support Site (with Lecturer/Instructor Support)

This book shows how to apply the ARM mbed. It also gives a comprehensive introduction to embedded systems, and to C/C++ programming. The book is a major rework of the first edition, with new chapters on wireless, digital audio, hardware issues, and internet applications.

An Introduction to the Design of Small-Scale Embedded Systems.
 Support site

This book  (now on the old side) has a more theoretical approach. Its chapters go deep into a range of important topics, e.g. memory technologies, data conversion, numerical routines, low power supply, and design methodologies. It is useful for students and practicing engineers who want to gain a deeper understanding of the main issues impacting embedded systems.
